Sometimes a dress and a red lip are all you need. Already I’m sneaking in spring dresses into the mix. The red on my lips is Desert Rose by Clé de Peau, by the way. My current favorite earthy red.

The Perfect Valentine’s Day Set

February 3, 2018

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. I’ve been with my boyfriend for nearly two years, with some long distance thrown in there scattered throughout our time as a couple. Him in Brazil. Me here in the States. It hasn’t been the easiest having to have time apart, but for the long run, we know it’s worth it for all the time we will have together in the future. Facetime is really such an amazing invention! And that’s how we can share Valentine’s Day together. Even though, really, Valentine’s Day to mean is just another holiday I don’t pay too much attention to. That’s because everyday can be Valentine’s Day.

I’ve never been one to really go crazy over lingerie sets. I’m so casual and laid back, when I’m at home with my boyfriend, I’m usually in mismatching sweats! He loves it either way, sweats or lingerie. But I know that it’s nice to have surprises to sneak into our relationship at special times. And not just for the boyfriend, but for myself, as well. Pretty lingerie is a great form of self love and TLC when home alone. Candles lit. Face mask on. Robe draped warmly around. Book in hand. Or Netflix and chill. My favorite fragrance dangling around my neck. Whatever it is, lingerie with extra va va voom can make any night of the week feel extra special. Even if there is no other reason than enjoying the view in the mirror for a few minutes in something that feels out of the ordinary. It’s nice to change it up. Valentine’s Day. Any Day. Single or taken. We all deserve that extra special treatment every now and then.

A Standout Coat by Lie Sangbong

I was lucky enough to get my hands on this all around fantastic coat by one of my favorite Korean designers, Lie Sangbong. This piece, a part of the FW17 collection, is a made up of bold, primary colors and prints, inspired by the 2018 Winter Olympics. I for sure have never had a coat like this. It’s a piece that leads an outfit. Nothing else can outshine it. It is in fact, an Olympic gold metal out of a series of winter coats. There were so many ways running through my head on how to style this baby. Layered with Heat Tech underneath, of course. I always start with that. Maybe with black oversized trousers? Tall black boots? A super chunky knit underneath? In the end, I settled on a simple route. My favorite blue denim, my go-to black cashmere sweater, and a pair of kitten heels with my name embroidered for a touch of femininity. I was in the mood to let the coat do the talking. The rest I let follow. It makes dressing in the cold so much easier because half the styling work is already done for you. Do you guys like to go for a standout coat to lift the winter mood?

 “I have never met a woman who is not strong. They don’t exist.” –  Diane von Furstenberg

I loved hearing Diane von Furstenberg speak a few weeks ago on a panel about female empowerment in the modern world. I realize that a lot of the times our power is nurtured from a feeling of weakness. It sparks that drive. That motivation to rise against the grain. This is exactly why I don’t look down upon acts of weakness that society has made stereotypical of our sex in a negative way. Things like: we are too emotional, we can’t lift as much as a man, we aren’t as business savvy, we aren’t financially strategic or capable, we are made to only make homes and not careers for ourselves, we are shallow, we are easy, we are bitches when we are not easy. The list goes on and on and on. Whatever they are, these are not weaknesses. They are just a challenging path to realization. And I’ll take a challenge. I always have. It’s how I learned to not be afraid to be let down. It aways got easier to get up time after time. I became #InCharge of the things that made me a female. I embraced them. I found a path and I worked towards it, and I focused on that. Tripped a few times, but that just made me want it more. I still keep wanting things more and more. And I want to tell you to never ever stop wanting that extra more for yourself. Especially when you put the work in. 

What makes you feel #InCharge? What makes you realize your power? What drives you to use it? All important questions of the moment. When I think of being in charge, I think of confidence. I think of taking hold of a room and keeping that attention with words, mannerisms, and energy. I think about influence. Right now, as woman, I believe that it is our time.Really, it has always been our time. But we are realizing it more than ever right now. Our voices are louder, clearer, stronger. I’m very proud of the women who make sure their voices are heard. I’m proud of my mother who came to America as an immigrant and made a home and career for herself. I’m proud of my friends who lift each other up. They inspire me. They make me feel beyond happy to be a woman. They make me want to be the best I can be. To doubt myself less. To cherish my body. To bathe in self confidence. To stand up for my beliefs and not be afraid to speak about them, be it one on one, in a group or right here on this blog. To feel #InCharge and take that charge to the next level at every moment. To dismiss moments of meekness and turn them into something bold. A statement that says look at me, this is who I am. But don’t just look. Also listen. That is what fashion is for, and that is what DVF is so talented at. Capturing women at their finest, their most statuesque. The DVF woman cannot be ignored, and that is the campaign we all should carry inside of us.
